1. Videodrome - Cronenberg at his finest.

2. A History of Violence - This may grow to become my favourite Cronenberg film.

3. Blue Velvet - Gotta love Frank.

4. An American Werewolf in London - The best horror/comedy ever!

5. Once Upon a Time in the West - Henry Fonda as the baddest dude ever in a Western!

Will do.

-Monty Python and The Holy Grail

I can't argue with that, I love Monty Python!


lol! I don't usually like this kind of film, but this one had me laughing very loudly.


I saw this once and I didn't really like it. I didn't really pay much attention to it because I was rather drunk at the time.

Kungpow: Enter The Fist

Again, I was drunk when I saw this film. From what I remember, it was good.

-Star Wars

*ahem* I said five films, not ten!

link many good movies...

  1. Bad Day At Blackrock (Spencer Tracy, and some great early cinematography)
  2. Seven Days In May (Definitely a mirror of the times; Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, Fascist/Military coup plot...)
  3. Red Tide (with Denzel and Gene Hackman, I dunno, I just like Hackman movies...)
  4. Original Blues Brothers (the one with John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd..."Illinois Nazi's. I hate Illinois Nazi's...)
  5. Forrest Gump (I actually liked Forrest Gump, maybe 'cause I grew up at about the same time...and I liked the story line.
  6. The Enemy Below (classic Cold War stuff)
  7. A Few Good Men (don't really care for Tom Cruise, but the court room scenes at the end are worth the price. And Nicholson's still the best

And just about anything with Christine Baransky (of The Bird Cage)

posted on Apr, 17 2006 @ 09:15 AM
In no particular order; The Natural, Das Boot, Patriot Games, Field of Dreams, and A Bridge Too Far(greatest WW2 movie ever, bar none.)

Others I hate to leave out; The Big Lebowski, Dances With Wolves, Saints and Soldiers, Falling Down, Peter Pan, Stripes, Stuck on You, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Eight Men Out, The Sandlot, and The Untouchables. Honestly, whos list really couldnt go on forever. There are too many great movies out there.
